I've never done any InDesign scripting, but I have a problem that the out-of-the-box app doesn't address. Basically I have a lot of product names in my InDesign document, and I'd like them all to be unique hyperlinks to corresponding product pages on a Website. I'm thinking there must be a way to script it so that when I export to a PDF, InDesign check will check against an XML file with the product names and corresponding URLs and create the appropriate hyperlinks. Is that not how scripting works? Is what I'm suggesting impossible for some reason or do you think it would be possible to write a script like that? Does such a script (or something similar) already exist? Thank you.
sure this could be done by script.
But without sample indd.doc and xml-file nearly impossible.
You should hire someone to code this if you haven't the approach to start coding yourself and get additional help here.
what does your xml look like?
